Well, I got some good news at lunch. Since I returned the oversized Givi cases, and traded down to a smaller set. My dealer decided to give me a $300 store credit vs. returning the items on my credit card. So, my wish list just got a bit shorter.
As for the tip-over, it was exactly that. I was stepping out the rear while the front was going nowhere, and the best plan of action was to let the bike drop on its side rather than risk me going down with it while holding the throttle. The crash bars would have sunk in that wet red clay just as bad as everything else. They might have prevented the mirror from being tweaked, but that is about the extent of it. Better tires, and a net loss of about 250lbs would have helped more than anything.
